I hope you are all enjoying a happy and creative summer. Katie’s Comforters Guild is having a good one: we’ve received wonderful donations of quilts, fleece blankets and fabric/supplies, and our membership continues to grow. You can keep up with the news, and see photos, on facebook and here, on our guild’s blogspot. I hope that you will continue to help spread the word about your guild.
One of our members (thank you, Karen W.!) asked me recently about the discount cards that Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores generously provided for our guild members this year. The cards are due to expire at the end of August, so I wrote to our contact at Jo-Ann’s corporate office, and received the following kind and generous offer:
“The VIP cards from last year will in fact expire at the end of the month. We have changed the process a bit and now send the cards, with the member's name on them, directly to their homes.
“The new Jo-Ann VIP Discount Card is valid from 8/1/10-8/31/11. The VIP Card can be used for 10% off your total purchase, including regular and sale priced items. For in-store purchases, the Jo-Ann 40% off regular priced item coupons can be used in the same transaction as the VIP Card 10% total purchase discount, although the 10% would not apply to the item that receives the 40% discount. For online orders, the VIP discount cannot be combined with any other offer. The Discount Card is valid at any Jo-Ann store, and is also valid online at www.joann.com by using the promotion code supplied on the back of the card.
“[Guild] Members can request their card online at www.joann.com/VIP for expedited processing. For members who do not have internet access, they can phone in their information to 877-604-2280.
“Please be sure your members are aware that their new cards will need to be validated by store management prior to first use by providing proof of organization membership and a state issued photo ID.
“I look forward to working with you in the future.
If you would like to renew your Jo-Ann Stores VIP Discount Card, or if you’ve never had one and would like to receive one, please follow the directions that are highlighted in yellow, above. This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to enjoy great prices all year long, when shopping for supplies for our guild. (This offer is for guild members, and is to be used for items purchased for the guild.)
Thank You, Jo-Ann Stores!
